What Makes It Awesome
A menu that is light, flavourful, wholesome and yet inspired by Kolkata’s love for street food, the summer offering at Fab Cafe, is truly fab! Most of the dishes are gluten-free with plenty of options for those of you who are vegan or on a keto diet. Refined oil is substituted by ghee, refined sugar by organic gur and wheat by hearty alternative grains.
Start your day with their healthy breakfast options like Polenta Upma (a gluten-free twist served with signature sambar and tomato nariyal chutney), Berry Smoothie Bowl (strawberry, raspberries, blueberries and vanilla topped with muesli and fresh fruit) or the perfect summer retreat, Mango Smoothie Bowl. The salad section has options that use the freshest ingredients and are perfect for a healthy meal. Try the refreshinglingly healthy Shakarkandi Tarabooj Salad. Roasted seasoned sweet potato, watermelon, mixed greens, roasted pumpkin seeds - all tossed up in a zesty citrus dressing.
Do samosas count as healthy? At Fabcafe, the Baked Dal Samosa with Chutney Trio sure does. Meat-lovers, feast on Mutton Galauti Kebabs (served on mini kuttu breads), Hariyali Murg Tikka, Chicken Chettinad, Kerala Fish Molee or Chicken Brown Rice Biryani.
There's a variety of coolers, smoothies, shakes and slow pressed juices to choose from. Don’t miss the Glow Hydration infused with coconut water, aloe vera, orange, pineapple and chia seeds. But keep in mind this drink is a limited-time addition. End your meal on a sweet note with the Caramalized Banana Cake or our favourite Himalayan Organic Honey and Walnut Tart. Both, crusty and yummy!
Oh and before we forget, if you have young, picky-eaters for company, don’t fret. Their innovative kids’ menu offers healthy and fun choices like - Mini Idlis with Cashew Cheese & Tomato Sauce, Pancakes with Jaggery Syrup & Fruit and Baked Potato Smileys.
What Could Be Better
The pricing is definitely on the higher side. Having said that, food that is good for your mind, body and soul is also worth paying big bucks for.
